Recipe: Shandy Ice Pop

We go back and forth on shandies, the lemonade-spiked, official beer cocktail of summer. Done right it's a super refreshing way to make your pint a bit more session-able.  But done wrong (and we'll call any premixed bottled versions very wrong) and you've got a handful of lemonheads polluting your beer.

When it came time for us to concoct our own shandy, we could think of no better way to combine the tartness of lemon, the essence of beer (in our case, the already citrus-packed Citrus Wheat), and the spirit of summer than in the form of a special adults-only ice pop.

Plus it leaves one hand free for a pint.

What You Need

What You Do

  1. In a small saucepan heat water and sugar over medium-high heat, whisking until sugar is completely dissolved to make a simple syrup. Let cool slightly.
  2. Combine simple syrup, lemon juice and beer, whisk until well blended.
  3. Pour into ice pop molds filling three quarters of the way. Add popsicle sticks and freeze (at least four hours). Enjoy.
